Flooding forces people from homes at First Nations

Hundreds of people have been forced to leave their homes due to flooding at two First Nations in Manitoba.

About 600 people from the Peguis First Nation and another 80 from the Fisher River First Nation have left their reserves. Water levels are their highest in 18 years.

The worst of the flooding has past but people aren't being allowed to return home. Tribal members have been put up in hotels in Winnipeg.
